Greetings from Church of Peace 10-13-16

Greetings from Church of Peace, Have you ever met a Samaritan? Come on Sunday and find out about these people with whom Jesus interacted. We’ll learn a good lesson for our own lives. The service begins at 8:45 a.m.

There is sadness in our church family this week. Dylan Beilke, 24-year-old son of Ray and Juli Beilke, died on Monday. Joe Shea, husband of Holly Shea, died on Sunday. Please remember these families in your prayers. Please also remember Bettye Baker who has been hospitalized.

Do you enjoy an evening with friends? Then join us on Sunday, October 23rd for a Fall Festival Dinner at the KC Hall. We’ll share appetizers and a delicious catered meal with dessert; a short program will follow. Tickets are on sale at the church office and will be available before and after worship on Sunday. They are $20.00 a piece; a cash bar will be available.

This Saturday is the first COP fall workday. Come at 8:00 with your rake-in-hand. Thank you!

Construction news: This week, the workers have been continuing to hang dry wall and to install insulation in the attic and walls. The stone work on the Military Road side starts today. They are making an opening into the sanctuary for the new staircase. The bathroom in Gammert will be usable early next week. That’s the news from Church of Peace.

We’ll see you in church! Pastors Jenny and Jim

A prayer for today: Gracious God of love, I pray for your blessing of comfort and peace upon all who grieve, especially the Beilke and Shea families. Bless Bettye Baker with your healing strength. And please bless me with whatever I need to live faithfully today. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
